Structure of CFPB is unconstitutional, rules Supreme Court

The United States Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is unconstitutional. The CFPB is the brainchild of Senator Elizabeth Warren and is a consumer watchdog. The Supreme Court, however, stopped short of dismantling the agency.

The law they put in place made this person a cabinet member that couldn't be removed by the president. This in direct violation of the constitution.Expand. . Article 2 ssection 2. "He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments." . This is a vested power of the Executive branch that has an existing check in the need of the Senate to approve appointments. Therefore any extra reatrictions placed on the president's choice of officers and their ability to be removed is violation of that power. https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/executive_branch https://constitutioncenter.org/interactive-constitution/article/article-ii#:~:text=He%20shall%20have%20Power%2C%20by,the%20supreme%20Court%2C%20and%20all
